    This proves and keeps showing how much Colombia has changed and it’s improving. JetBlue won’t be disappointed of that I’m sure! With the open skies agreement JetBlue should keep exploiting the colombian market and open to other cities too like Cali, Manizalez and even Pereira in which already offer destinations to the US

    Thank you, JetBlue for this badly needed route addition to a large, popular market! Medellin is a tremendous city and a lucrative destination for many carriers.
